Prajakta and other child parliament members

" Prajakta celebrated her birthday on the 24th of October. As this fell on a school holiday, she distributed toffees to the members of Child Parliament group of her village. On the day of her birthday, her father purchased another she goat and Prajakta named her “Fulli”.

In November,  “ Children’s Day” was celebrated in her school.  Prajakta and other members of the Child Parliament organised a rally in their village.  They also prepared and stuck posters, in the prominent places of her village,  on Child Rights, Child Education, and Equality of boys and girls.

In December NISD organised training for the members of Child Parliament groups.  Group members discussed the problems of children in their village and made presentations. Prajakta took the lead, and presented problems of their village very well.

Prajakta Participated in the Educational Tour, organised by NISD, at Khodad, where one of the biggest telescopes is placed.  Here children learn about what a radio telescope is, how it is prepared, it's functions and usefulness etc.  Four children, along with Prajakta participated in this Educational Tour.

In January 2012 a 'Training on Joyful Education' was organised at Pokhari village, by NISD.  Prajakta too participated in this training and learnt various action songs, 'advance use of different numbers', and preparation of educational material from locally available waste material.  Experienced trainers teaching in a simple and joyful way meant the children enjoyed the training program very much.

In February a Cultural Program was organised in Prajakta's school, and she took part in a group song.

On 19th February Pulse Polio drive was organised in Saikhindi village. Prajakta and her child parliament group members visited 110 families and encouraged parents to take their children under 5 to polio vaccinations.

Recently election of Child Parliament took place.   By noticing good work done by Prajakta, other members elected her as Chief Minister once again.  The remaining body is new.  Prajakta is busy training the new ministry about the values and functioning of their groups, and how they can take part in different programs."
